For the Baklava Crumble:

  • 4 sheets phyllo dough , thawed
  • 1/2 cup shelled unsalted pistachios (any other nut or combo of nuts is ok)
  • 1/3 cup confectioner sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter

For assembling the parfaits:

  • 1 carton vanilla yogurt (Greek preferably but any other type or flavor would work)
  • 1 jar smucker’s Triple Berry Fruit and Honey Jam (any other flavor would work too)


For the Baklava Crumble:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Take the phyllo dough sheets and layer them over each other. Take an edge of the phyllo dough rectangle and roll out the dough into a tube shape.
  3. Use your scissors to cut out a fourth of an inch strip of the rolled phyllo dough over a large bowl.
  4. Add the pistachios, sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon over the phyllo strips and use your hands to toss the mixture together—don’t worry about tearing up pieces of the strips because it will crumble anyway.
  5. Add the butter a tablespoon at a time to the phyllo mixture and toss everything very well.
  6. Now spread the phyllo mixture on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. You’ll need to rotate the baking sheet and toss the phyllo mixture gently with a wooden spoon to make sure the heat is evenly distributed.
  7. Remove the baklava crumble from the oven when it turns golden and slightly crisp. The crumble will crisp up more as it cools.

To assemble the baklava yogurt parfait:

  1. In a glass cup ( bowl or any serving cup of your choice) start layering 2 tablespoons of yogurt at the bottom, followed by a tablespoon of jam, followed by a tablespoon and a half of baklava crumble.
  2. Repeat the same process twice (more or less to your taste) and serve the baklava parfait right away or wrap it up and chill for unto 4 days. The baklava crumble can keep in an airtight container for up to a month. Serve the baklava yogurt parfait and Enjoy :)
